Window chair ideas

With modern life and technology taking over our lives, sometimes there’s nothing better than taking some time out of the day to relax and unwind on your favourite armchair by the window. Window seating provides the perfect space to relax after a long day, as well as being a great way to use up empty space whilst adding a stylish touch to your home. In fact, there are plenty of advantages of having a window seating area:

  • A space to soak up the sun in the summer
  • A cosy reading nook
  • Extra space with versatile storage benches
  • Additional seating for smaller spaces

However, it can often be hard deciding where to start; where is the best space to have window seating? How do you make a space under the window both comfortable and stylish? Here at Old Creamery Furniture, we have hand-selected our favourite armchairs and benches that would make the ideal window feature in your home.
